Hello there!

This piece was inspired by a particularly harrowing evening with KFHs (kids from HADES). In self-defense I started plotting—er, planning—the fates of future nieces and nephews and all the subliminal messages I could send them to improve behavior.

Sadly I came up short on the subliminal message department, but I did end up with this cute piece. Maybe the cheery colors and good wishes I implanted in it will produce a happy disposition at the very least Smiley

This is my second embroidery project. I used back stitch, straight stitch, French knot, and the pretty nifty satin stitch.

Thanks for checking it out!

There's a party in my yarn stash and everyone's invited.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Sooo sweet. I love the subliminal message. Also, I would have never guessed this was your second project. Rock on!
